Using a Flexible Layout

With a flexible layout, the elements on a page can expand and contract to fill the space available.

This type of design may be appropriate up to certain screen sizes and resolutions, but the effect may appear too stretched at higher resolutions, or when used with larger, wide screen, monitors.

It does allow designs to transform gracefully at lower resolutions without the appearance of horizontal scroll bars.

For example, this page can be viewed as if at a 800x600 resolution.
